Selene are a fresh new Symphonic Metal band quickly becoming a rising name in the UK metal scene.
Comprised of members from across Northern Ireland they bring together a mix of soaring Operatic vocals, infectious hooks and hard hitting metal creating a signature Symphonic Metal sound without losing the Metal Edge.
Since their formation in 2013, Selene have released 2 EPs both receiving incredible critical and commercial success. “Among the Frozen” was released in July 2013 when the band only consisted of Vocalist Shonagh Lyons and Guitarist, John Connor. They were soon joined by Bass player Thomas Alford (Sandstone, Tim “Ripper”
Owens(Live)) and drummer Cameron Ashlund-Glass (Darkest Era) and recorded “Paradise Over”.
After a year of gigging accross Ireland they recorded and released their debut album "The Forgotten" in November 2015 which was widely considered an all around step forward for the band and the best reviews to date. This was followed by extensive touring across Ireland to promote the release including a main stage appearance at 'The Siege of Limerick' festival and shows supporting the Italian Metal band Temperance.
2017 saw Camerons departure from the band but also the completion of their second album.
